Just one small comment:

+#define MSGTR_MPDEMUX_ASFHDR_DRMProtected "Content is DRM protected and cannot be played by MPlayer!\n"

Please, do s/protected/restricted/g . Calling it "protected" implies it may
be a good thing. I'm sure we don't want to send such message to the user.

Otherwise I say commit immediately.
